The level of 1.2358 breakthrough will lead to a decrease at least to the support around 1.2261. Apparently, it is obvious that the euro needs to rise up and consolidates above 1.2500 to lower the downward pressure.
The pound was hit by the Bank of England. The quarterly inflation report dispelled all our doubts about the early monetary policy tightening. The UK annual inflation forecast in 2014 and 2015 was lowered, so it was noted that the main eurozone trading partner has stagnation. The negative US and UK spread yields have again increased that confirms the steady downtrend.

The US and Japan differential 10 year bond yields has shown reduction for the last days that with the technical correction in the world’s leading stock markets acts as the bulls’ deterrent. The Japanese yen is sold on its growth. The dollar with the Japanese yen fell to 114.88, there the yen was sold again and the pair is growing.

The MACD indicator is in a positive territory.
If the level of 116.10 is overcome, we should expect its growth towards 117.00, but it should be noted the pair overbought that could hamper its progress. The loss of support near 115.00-114.88 will lead to reduction to 114.17.
